who smashed tater tots into the carpet
or left crushed beer cans in the flowerbox.
it might as well have been, and
if you're lucky
next time, it will be.)
2. when your phone rings after midnight,
it's never the person you want it to be.
answer it anyway.
and when it's a boy who wants to read poetry and watch meteor showers,
understand that that's probably not all he wants,
and then hang up.
or don't hang up.
trade poems and stars and kisses,
and let it mean nothing or everything.
3. skipping class is never a good idea
unless you're with a friend you love
and you sneak along the railroad tracks to sit and smoke and watch trains pass
or unless you're alone,
and you need to walk and think and drink steaming coffee in the rain
okay, fuck it, skipping class at least once is probably a good idea.
4. don't apologize for asking questions.

Although I'm destined to become sea foam
I will always love you no matter what's happening
After dissolving into the ocean and sky
I will always watch over you.
I wanted to closer to the blue starry
sky that you would sleep under every night and
I longed for that day to-come to me in the
ocean but when it came it seemed it wasn't perfect
The first feelings in my little life
how heartbreaking love can be if your not ready for all of its endless pain
Even though my legs ache every step i take
i will always love you no matter what's happening
i can't dance or live like a normal girl
but I'll always watch over you.
I realized that it's- impossible to reach
that star resting upon- your beautiful castle
It doesn't matter how- loud i scream cause i know
that you will not be able to hear my voice oh
Suddenly my sisters- appear at the shoreline
And bringing me a knife, tell me if i kill him
I will be able to- live without the strong curse
I will sing, i will sing, Forever to you
